How to: Linux configure fingerprint reader

Recently I was looking information about getting the integrated fingerprint reader to work under Linux. I found this site. It describes the process of getting the integrated fingerprint reader to work under Linux, using bioapi and binary-only drivers. It is based on experiences in Ubuntu on a IBM Thinkpad T43. The same works on Fedora Core 4 and 5, RHEL4, SuSE 9.3, SuSE 10, and Gentoo.
